merino wool is on its way...it's in the mail


i am officially waiting on two very exciting mail orders for the shop... a completely CUSTOM, limited order of hand dyed & hand spun MERINO wool from a wonderfuly run etsy shop. (& some luscious ALPACA ultra soft wool too, more about that another time...)


 "As for my wool. This particular merino I buy from a small family run mill in Prince Edward Island. I get it in 30 pound batches of white roving. Then I break it up into smaller batches- a pound or less- and dye it all right in my tiny kitchen using local Maine acid dyes. Finally I spin it up with positive energy, wash it, label it & send it out the door! Does that help?" from rachel of OnTheRound

i just love the idea of that...its amazing to me! we've been able to discuss the exact colours too, so its completely going to be limited & custom to YarnOverMovement, & the new eyelet lace ORILLIA shrugs, not to mention all the in the works items, like lacy spring/summer tops & tanks....so gorgeous. it's gonna be so good, let me tell you, really there is just no other way is there?... ok back to knitting...
